Hulu Renews ‘Quick Draw’ for Second Season

First season of Western comedy procedural was among the site's top 10 most-watched shows this summer

Hulu has picked up Western comedy procedural “Quick Draw” for a 10-episode second season set to bow in 2014, as the site continues to build its originals lineup.

The show’s first season was consistently among the top 10 most popular shows on Hulu this summer along with along with “The Awesomes,” according to the company.

Quick Draw” season 2 joins “Deadbeat,” Hulu’s first coproduction with Lionsgate, and the second season of “The Awesomes” animated comedy from Seth Meyers (“Saturday Night Live”) and Michael Shoemaker (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”) as part of the Internet video site’s 2014 slate.

At this point, it’s not clear how Hulu’s originals strategy will evolve under newly appointed CEO Mike Hopkins, Fox Networks’ president of distribution. The company’s parents, Disney, 21st Century Fox and NBCUniversal, decided to hold on to the site this summer — and said they’ll invest $750 million in content and personnel — after soliciting bids for the property.

Hulu is not adopting a binge-viewing release sked for originals: Hulu.com will have two episodes at launch and continue with a weekly episodic rollout for the rest of the series. The site has only in a few cases put full seasons up at once, including “The Wrong Mans” and licensed shows such as “East Los High.”

“Quick Draw” is co-created and executive produced by Nancy Hower and John Lehr (“10 Items or Less”), and co-executive produced by Keith Raskin (“Key & Peele,” “The League”). Series stars Lehr as a Harvard-educated sheriff who uses his forensics expertise to solve crimes in a small Kansas town.
